Well I may not have been pony-a'-sized **tear** personally but I will tip my hat to you, none the less, dice. Freakin' awesome thread! You have more then made up for the Persona 5 gag you got me with yesterday-LoL

The cuteness level of things around here has increased greatly due to your contribution.

The April fool is that you believed her when she said it's an April fool.


ok.... this thread is once again confirming for me why it is I use the avatar and title that I do...

Well folks normally I don't dig comedy (with some exceptions such as "The idiot adventures of Photon Earth") but after breaking my aversion to subtitles in recent weeks I decided to go back and watch "Humanity Has Declined" on CR.

Wow, I can't say enough good about the series. Highly entertaining. Albeit short, each episode was thoroughly enjoyable with the exception of one brief (but necessary) lull toward the end. It goes from funny, to charming, to clever, to damn-near brilliant very swiftly. It becomes confusing in a whacky sort of willy-wonka fashion but doesn't leave you in the dark long enough to feel lost, hasty to make sense of the insanity your bearing witness to. And the icing on the cake? The fairies in the series may very well be the cutest thing I have ever beheld in animation... seriously I want one of those little f****rs tattooed on me I liked em' so much.

And I have one more review...

Bear with me here... this could get longwinded...

Persona Trinity Souls... my official verdict... absolutely freakin' sucked... with a capital "SUCK"... worst thing I have watched in at least a year... take note of my ellipsis-relapse in trying to convey my disgust...

I can officially say this is one of my favorite ps3 RPGs.

such lofty praise!!!  all that amazing competition on the ps3 :P

Yeeeee-up!! And I stand behind that statement :) This gen provided some fierce competitors vying for the title of "Chroma's favorite PS3 JRPG" but very few managed to capture my heart and swallow my time like Nino... then again very few had world maps, and even quasi- acceptable gameplay for that matter...

damn... I hate to admit it but you got me GOOD!! I am so freakin' gullible...

You win this round, you cunning vixen you...
1026  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: March 31, 2013, 06:23:48 PM
Well I officially finished all the post game stuff today. Save, the last few (time consuming) items I would need to craft to complete the alchemy quest. I have seen everything Nino has to offer....

Enjoyable as it has been I do feel rather cheated in the ending. I thought all the post game stuff would bring closure for me... it has not... although I am glad I did it all because it certainly did lend a great deal to fleshing things out. And without spoiling anything about it I just want to say I found the conductor himself to be a very amusing character :)

I feel like after accomplishing all the post game crap you should be able to beat the game again and get a better ending or something.

I can officially say this is one of my favorite ps3 RPGs. Didn't beat Tales of Graces F or Disgaea 4 for me though. Close, but no cigar as they say.

It has come to my attention that using an electric cooker is painfully slow when you are used to gas.

I have had my own house for about 3-4 years now with a huge kitchen. A nice large stove thingy built into my counter-top and an oven that is built into the wall. It looks pretty cool actually... And yet, with all these fancy devices that came with the homestead I use 3 microwaves I have plugged in at the same time!!! (LoL) I have become a master of the microwave!!!!! With my 3 micro-combo-cooking-system I can cook enough for a weeks worth of meals in under an hour with minimal effort using disposable cookware (zero clean-up).

Shows how much I know. I put over a hundred hours into DS and then another ~60 into DS:O and never even knew there were prevalent bugs. Evidently I am lucky to an absurd degree. Bullet dodged, I guess

That is how I felt about Ar Tonelico 2. I played through the entire thing, on PS3 no less without so much as a single freeze or anything. I was quite surprised when I learned how some actually consider the game bugged to the point of not being able to be finished.

I hope my 3DSXL black-out was a fluke.... I do leave my 3ds on 24/7 (just closed when not in use) so I'm certain that couldn't be helping the situation.
1029  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: March 30, 2013, 08:12:57 PM
I just finished the game a few minutes ago. I'll have to wait a bit for my final impressions to set in but overall I had a blast playing the game. And WOW, that last boss battle was intense! Damn spikes and satellite things drove me crazy!

Kudos bytor!! and I concur... that last boss actually gave me trouble... its like everything is going just dandy and then "BAM!!"- enemies regenerated, your slapped with debuffs and "chaos" gets cast all in perfect succession to completely ruin your day...

Wow...REALLY disagree with the article on this game. NNK, throughout the game, made me feel like I did in the 80's when I first played video game RPG's.

I thoroughly loved the title myself, but the difference between NNK and games from the 8 bit and 16 bit era was innovation. This stuff was new and exciting then. Now its just exciting because it is rare.

While I still get a sense of nostalgia playing titles like this and newer entries in the tales series, without the aforementioned magic being "new" to me in some sense it remains "nostalgic"... and the calender still reads 2013...

That is not to say I don't love it. I do. Just in different respect than I did say breath of fire or secret of mana the first romp through those titles.

I sort of thought that was the main point of the article. That is, the editorial was not written to denounce NNK but to exploit the lack of innovation in the genre as of late. At least that was what I took from it.

EDIT: Although I do realize the editorial does lay into Nino pretty hard, I sort of just took that as the way he chose to get his point across and not the actual intent of the writing.
1030  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I replay FFX or wait for the remake? on: March 30, 2013, 03:06:50 PM

Honestly though, the question itself basically amounts to "Do you want to die of AIDs or Cancer?" Both methods are slow, agonizing ways to go, while one choice offers a glimmer of hope and the other offers no hope at all.

You know your serious about your games when you draw comparisons like that-LOL

Thats why I love your posts Aeolus! A priceless analogy if ever I read one!! This thread is chalk full of good verbage actually...

On that note, my two cents on the matter...

When it comes to Square Enix I must say I could be excited about remakes or new IPs given the project in question. The problem is, that on either front, they have failed my expectations miserably. There are still so many 16-bit era games that have not seen the light of day  outside of japan (save fan translations for roms to play via emulation) that  I would LOVE to see remade and localized. Yet instead we get more IOS incarnations of final fantasies that are already available on multiple platforms.

And when it comes to new IP's I simply just want to see something new pioneered in the genre of the JRPG, on home consoles, to restore some faith... I don't even care if it sucks... I'll buy... I swear, its like square enix forgot what made them so popular to begin with...

At the end of the day, regardless of whether we are talking remakes or new games altogeather, I simply DON'T want to hear "final fantasy" unless there is a "type-0" (won't ever happen) or a "6" (probably won't ever happen...) attached to it.

I've been nickle and diming overclocked in my spare time at work and just last night my system went black (both screens)  and was completely unresponsive for a minute. I couldn't power off or anything. Then, as if a delayed response, the system shut down and I was able to turn it back on without a hitch.

Only time my DS has ever done anything like this...
1032  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: March 29, 2013, 07:43:12 PM
It was more that I felt like I was always grinding for cards. In P1 it was like, you get a card from a demon, get a card from another demon, fuse them, new persona, done. In P2 they were like a separate currency and you needed a lot of them, iirc.

Also the dungeon designs in P2 weren't much better than, er, P1's, or the SNES SMTs.

While I still hate the demon negotiating and card system of P2, it has been become quite helpful for ending battles in a more timely fashion late game. Getting new persona as a result is simply like a bonus to being able to move through dungeons quicker via this strategy for me.
1033  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: March 29, 2013, 05:21:03 PM
I while I do agree the gameplay is about as rough as it comes with turn based JRPG's, there are certainly enough ways to exploit the mechanics to make things VERY easy.

I ditched the game.  I couldn't stand the gameplay.  I put it on easy and the high rate of random encounters just drove me up a wall.  I have known for quite awhile how the story goes, so unfortunately that is not a motivator to keep me playing (the story really is awesome.  It's a shame they didn't dial down the encounter rate in the PSP version).

Yea, if I knew the story you'd be hard pressed to get me to play too. For as much as I love it your certainly not going to see me playing through this one again- LoL
1034  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: March 29, 2013, 01:33:54 PM
I meant to post this yesterday but totally forgot!

I just wanted to quickly say I really liked the little editorial about Ni No Kuni that just went up. Very insightful and, dare I say, philosophic musing over the experience of playing Ni No Kuni and getting in touch with what we truly want. The point that really knocked it out the park, in a manner of speaking, for me was summarized in the last leg of the writing...

Admitting that might mean confronting something quite painful about the nature of life, but if we wake up and open our eyes start to see clearly for once and live better we can begin to enjoy what is and not what was.

Brilliantly stated... and I totally agree!

The realization came to me years ago as I initially hated the current gen because of what happened to the JRPG. To make a long story short, once I came to the conclusion that no matter what game they make now it would not rewind the clock to the mid 90's, it all of the sudden became much easier to digest and appreciate some of the weird niche titles I have ended up falling in love with.

Kudos on the writing good sir!
1035  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Thread -- Making people crazy since 1987, kupo! on: March 29, 2013, 01:19:23 PM

EDIT: BTW, has anyone seen how good the Final Fantasy V remake looks for the iPhone?! Why they would not release that on the PSN or something is beyond me. I hated how FF1 controlled on the iPhone and didn't touch it after like the first dungeon. I'm seriously considering purchasing it despite this, but would much rather have it on a different system. The screenshots are killing me, though.

Man, do I sympathize with that sentiment! As soon as I saw it I thought/felt that same urge to conquer my aversion to IOS titles.

What frightens me however is the thought that, some day, should they ever give FF6 an over-haul it may suffer the same horrible fate!! The would be the eternal, final, GRAND ULTIMATE kick in the scrotum of all my idealistic gaming hopes... I think I would be unreasonable to the point of boycotting square enix products if that happened.
